Seattle artist Katy Stone’s work is evocative of natural environments and ecological surfaces – water, plants, and other outdoor elements. Through her work, she brings the texture of nature inside the buildings and structures in which her work is placed. A peer panel selected Stone to create artwork for Seattle City Light’s new technical training facility opening near South Park. She will work with the Office of Arts & Culture, Seattle City Light, its consultants and local community members to develop and install a permanent, site-specific artwork.
Stone has exhibited nationally and internationally at galleries in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Vienna, and at spaces including the Boise Art Museum and Suyama Space in Seattle. Her work has been reviewed in many publications including Artweek, New Art Examiner, Sculpture Magazine and Art in America. Commissioned public artworks include projects at Conoco Phillips in Houston, and King County Correctional Facility in Seattle, among others. Originally from Iowa, Stone received her MFA in painting from the University of Washington in 1994.
This project is funded by Seattle City Light 1% for Art funds.
